Have your say: How has the pandemic affected your mental health?
Our Friends at Healthwatch Liverpool are collating feedback on our experiences during the pandemic and how the last 18 months have affected our mental health and wellbeing. They'll also be interested in hearing how Liverpool mental health services are doing (in your opinion) and if this could be developed in the future to make sure that services are meeting the needs across Liverpool's communities.
So if you have 5 minutes spare then why not have your say to share your feedback, experiences and suggestions ...
Here's more from Claire at Healthwatch Liverpool :
How has the Covid-19 Pandemic affected your Mental Health?
The Covid-19 pandemic has had many impacts on all of us since March 2020. Some of these impacts have been on our physical health, whilst others have been on our mental wellbeing. Mental health has been amongst the biggest issues that people have raised with Healthwatch Liverpool over the past year and we are interested to know more about your experiences.
One way you can help us is by completing our survey. Everything you tell us is anonymous and will be treated confidentially. The information we gather from the survey will be used to inform mental health service providers, commissioners and decision-makers to improve local support, service provision and policy – based on the experiences and needs of people living in Liverpool.
As well as collecting information from this survey, we are planning to hold a series of focus groups and one-to-one interviews to gather more in-depth feedback. If you would like us to contact you about taking part in a focus group or one-to-one interview, please enter your contact details by clicking the link at the end of the survey. All reports based on the information that you share with us will be available at on our website in the coming months.
You can find the survey at bit.ly/mentalhealth-covid-hwl or https://healthwatchliverpool.co.uk/mental-health-and-impact-covid-19
An information video is also available at https://youtu.be/U7nIKL250B0
